Terrible everything – I've never been met with such disrespectful employees as I did at Thunder Jacksons. This place is run by mentally challenged girls trying to work a sports bar. They neglected the main purpose of the bar which is to serve people what they ordered while the people watch sports. These employees could not get an order right to save their lives. Our party had to ask for drinks multiple times before we'd finally receive it. Rather than making sure the sports games could be heard, the employees thought it was more important to play a video game at the bar which involved penthouse girls. The food was not worth the terrible service. I will never recommend this place to anyone..ever...
Are you kidding me – I'm shocked this place got more than 1 star. In short, this place has the worst service I've had in nyc (and I've lived here for a while). The employees don't know what service is, the food is overpriced, and the "sports" appeal is NON-EXISTENT. I tried to watch the Giants vs. Cowboys game there and the asinine employees that worked there thought it'd be more appreciated to hear crappy music than the actual game. I would sooner recommend selling your kidney on the black market before ever telling someone to go to this bar. Trust me when I say you WILL BE DISAPPOINTED. Tell your friends!
Never again will I eat here – Thunder Jackson's is by far the WORST SPORTS BAR EVER!!! Do not come here if you have any interest in watching your favorite teams play. The employees are rude, inconsiderate and incompetent of getting an order correct. They decide playing music is much more important than hearing the actual game at a S-P-O-R-T-S B-A-R. The food is OK at best, but the service makes you sad you spent $15 on a burger. Please save you money and tell your friends: THUNDER JACKSONS IS TERRIBLE!
Worse Than Expected – This place is downright cheesy. The food was awful, drinks overpriced, overall a lame place. I felt like I was the only one there, wait a minute, I think I was! It was Empty. Much better places to have a drink or bar grub within a block of this dump. Avoid Avoid Avoid!!!! Spend your money elsewhere.
Fun... EVERYTIME – It seems like we always end up here, even if we've decided to go somewhere else. The people are so friendly, and the owner/manager has initated us into his "Family" . It's fun watching people attempt to drink the 64oz "boot" of beer. You'll see the girls dancing on top of the bar every now and then, and the ambiance is a lot of fun. Yes there are a lot of out of towners, and college students, but after a few rounds, WHO CARES??
Needless to say we'll be back again next week =)
PS. (Nobody Put's Baby In the Corner) unless of course, you're lucky enough to grab that table in the back
Way cool place to be any night of the week – I found this place by chance walking past it one particular thursday when i was supposed to be working. I went in and called a few friends and they meyt me. we proceeded to have a great evening into night. now it may be that we drank a lot, but im certain that they environment there helped. everyone was so nice and we just couldnt get over what a great time we had so now we go back weekly. at least. do a favor to funness and go.
"Dirty" Burger... Dirty dancing... Clean place – What drew me in was the happy hour price... I had a glass of red sangria for $3! What kept me there was the "Dirty Burger". I wanted cheese on it, and they wouldn't put it on! Not even bacon, but ya know what? It didn't need it! The burger just melted in your mouth, it was so good! Just the burger and the bun... who knew? I live in the neighborhood and since then I have come in at night and it's a whole different atmosphere. There are girls dancing on the bar and bartenders breathing fire... fun spot. Gets a lil crowded on Fri and Sat nights, so opt for a scorpion bowl or something that you don't have to keep going to the bar for.
OVERPRICED, RICH, UPTIGHT BAR WITH NO THRILLS WHATSOEVER!! – I agree with the editorial review regarding this place. Even as I walked past the place from outside, I was able to tell what kind of place this really was. As I looked inside, there was literally 2 people in the entire place for happy hour. Then, when I looked at their menu posted outside and saw their prices, I knew right away why that was the case. They want close to $5 for domestic beer and much more for imported drinks. The picture of the bartender blowing fire was most likely taken from The Patriot or similar bar, but not this place. In fact, the bar area looks nothing like the background shown in the picture above at Thunder Jacksons. I don't even know how why they would call themselves an Urban Roadhouse unless the owner is seriously retarded. They should call themselves an Urban Froo froo venue where 2 people sip champagne in a boring atmosphere. That's exactly the kind of place Thunder Jacksons is. They should close this place and put a REAL urban roadhouse with reasonable drink prices in its place. One where the bartenders dance on the bar, saw dust on the floor, etc.... That's the kind of place desperately needed in Greenwhich Village right now because there are currently no hard core dive bars in this part of the city. So, save yourself the trouble and expense by avoiding this place altogether. Bring back the REAL dive bars!!
A fantastic burger! – The 'dirty burger' is one of the best burgers I've ever had! The chef takes pride in his burger and has restrictions on how it will be served, but he knows best! Great relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a beer and burger! Wait staff was friendly and attentive! Definitely stop by!
Bleecker Street's sports bar scene gets a honky-tonk boost at this urban-style roadhouse serving brown-bagged 40s. – In Short
Hitch on spurs before sauntering inside this self-described "urban roadhouse," which is noticeably lacking in the sawdust-on-the-floor and girls-dancing-on-the-bar departments. Instead, you'll discover glossy tables and a long, L-shaped bar lit by plentiful flat-screen TVs displaying the day's athletic contests to the hooting appreciation of unwinding Wall Streeters and Phi Kappa-types. Most sip domestic beer, but brave drunkards opt for Miller High Life 40-ouncers served in brown paper bags, which the bartenders have thoughtfully crinkled around the bottleneck.
Hits: While your favorite game flashes across the flat-screen TVs, you'll chomp some of the finest bar food this side of Washington Square Park.
Misses: Novelty aside, do you really want to pay $12 for a 40-ounce of Miller High Life served in a brown paper bag? You're better off heading to a bodega and sitting on someone's stoop.
